Yankees re-sign CC Sabathia to one-year deal
The New York Yankees and left-hander CC Sabathia have agreed a one-year deal, the team announced on Wednesday.
Sabathia tallied a 9-7 record with a 3.65 ERA in 29 starts in 2018. He struck out 140 and walked 51 in 153 innings pitched.
The six-time All-Star has spent the last 10 seasons with the Yankees. He has also pitched for the Milwaukee Brewers and Cleveland Indians during his 18-year career.
The 38-year-old says this will be his final season in the major leagues.

The Yankees are reportedly interested in re-signing veteran free agent J.A. Happ. The team is also hoping to trade starter Sonny Gray in the offseason, general manager Brian Cashman said earlier this week.
